Although we pride ourselves on our astrological expertise and intuitive insights, these things are of no use unless we can help you translate those findings, readings, and intuitions into some form of practical self-empowerment. Our website is dedicated to this single goal.
Our daily, monthly and yearly readings are of course general in nature but as a means of introducing our audience to astrology, we believe this initial teaser will stimulate a greater interest to find out more and in-depth information based upon accurately prepared horoscopes which rely on one’s time, place and date of birth.
Although numerology isn’t the focus of my professional work, I have on many occasions employed it to provide me with insight into the people I meet. When birth dates aren’t provided you can get a snapshot of the personality through the name of the person or the birthdates without any horoscope. The letters of the alphabet resonate with certain vibrations and planetary energies. This is according to the Chaldean system of numerology, which I like a lot. The numerical values of the letters are added up to give you a primary resonant number.
The year of life we are living can also reveal many things if studied numerologically. Last year, 2020, has passed. But can we gain an understanding as to the meaning of that year numerologically?
I’ve had a book on my shelf for years called Numerology for Everybody, written by Montrose. I’ve often referred to it because, strangely, it contains some uncanny insights. 2020 is 2 + 0+ 2 + 0 which equals 4. Let me quote from the book and what it says about the number 4 as a vibration:
“Indicates work accomplished through will experience action and realization. deliberate or cautious type shows steadiness inclined to view everything from an opposite angle to others, which brings opposition and secret enemies. The number 4 rebels against rules and regulations and would reverse the order of things in communities and governments attracted to social questions and reforms of all kind, very positive and highly strung and sensitive, easily wounded in feelings, rather indifferent as to the accumulation of wealth. But when acquired surprises others by the way for employers, and the use for puts it too easily becomes despondent and melancholy, inclined to feel lonely and isolated”.
Bear in mind that this also refers to the personality types that this number governs. If you look at it purely from a position of what happened to us last year it seems to have the ring of truth to it, wouldn’t you say?
I’ve also liked this book because it doesn’t only reduce the numbers down to the individual, single-digits. Here we see that it’s a combination of two double digits 20 = 20. And this is the quote that I quite liked in terms of what I thought 2020 reflected. Here’s what it said:
“The Awakening, also the judgment, the awakening of new plans, new purposes, new ambitions. The call to action for some greater purpose, cause or duty. Not a material number, doubtful as far as worldly success is concerned. As for the future, there’s an indication of delays, hindrances to plans and obstacles which can only be conquered through the spiritual development of man’s nature”.
This last excerpt really indicated what I think 2020 was about in terms of the spiritual implications.
Now, naturally, I wanted to see what 2021 has in store. That will be reduced number to the number 5 ( 2+0+2+1), and that, according to this book, is:
“The fundamental sex number, makes friends easily and gets along with others who are born almost any month. 5 exhausts the nervous strength and often falls victim to nervous breakdown of the worst kind. Easily becomes irritable and quick-tempered under any mental tension.
Like rubber, is elastic and rebounds at once from the heaviest blow for nothing affects 5 deeply for very long.
5 is attracted to gambling, the Stock Exchange and bond speculators. Dislikes hard manual work and seems natural to drift into always of making money quickly. 5 is quick in thought and decisions and also impulsive in its actions. It lives on its nerves and craves every kind of excitement”.
If we take these numbers to signify anything practically, to me it would seem to indicate tension throughout the world. You’ll also notice that there are strong references to the stock market and the financial markets making money and diversification of income. The sex number is very creative as well. It’s intellectually full of ideas. In Vedic astrology, Mercury rules the number 5. In some systems of astrology, they think that the Sun rules number 5 because it dominates the house of the natural Zodiac. Generally, I take Mercury is the governor of number 5. The letters of the alphabet under its jurisdiction are E, H, N and X. These letters are governed by number 5 and Mercury and should also, according to the system be pronounced in the year 2021.
What this shows us also is that the vibration of the number 4 is one of awakening. There’s no doubt that this last 12 months and the events that have ensued have forced us all into a major rethink. This is a paradigm shift is taking place. Our values are being challenged. People can’t make sense of some of the rules and regulations that have been imposed over the past year. That is also indicated in the number 4, which was last year’s vibration.
Social distancing and isolation can only manifest in a person if they haven’t yet tapped into the creative self. We all need social interaction. During some periods where that’s not possible creative activity as a way of overcoming that sense of disconnection and despair.
This coming year is showing us that the intellectually creative energies of the number 5 and Mercury Should predominate. We should all avail ourselves of this powerful vibration, to elevate our thinking. We must think more positively about everything, even the difficulties we are in. Those difficulties continue as individuals and communities. But now as a global and unified species, we need to tackle bigger issues that threaten the survival of our people.
A teabag tastes better in hot water. This sentiment was also echoed in the movie Starman with Jeff Bridges. At the end of the movie he stated, “What I’ve learned is that you humans seem to be at your best when you’re at your worst!”.
This reflects the idea that says difficult moments and challenges are indeed the catalysts for change. This means changing our minds, our hearts and deeds. It’s only through a global change that that’s going to happen. Yet the fact of the matter is that it really all begins at an individual level.
2021 requires an intellectual insight, a perception of your capacity to change the way you think. You must change your belief systems, and attitudes to the particular circumstances you find yourself in. Capitalise on that, rather than being defeated by it. I’m not saying that you’re going to be successful today, or tomorrow. It’s enough to have the awareness that your mind is still thinking in certain ways that are undermining you. You need a shift in that awareness. That’s fuel enough to trigger the needed and appropriate changes in your life.
2021 has just started. Make no mistake about it, the electromagnetic energy of 7 billion humans thinking has an immense impact on not only our personal relationships but the environment. In a previous article, I spoke about bio-magnetic pollution. Could it be that although carbon emissions are endangering our species that are even more fundamental, immediate changes we can make in our own thinking and behaviour?
We should be working harder on our thought emissions as a race. The collective has the power although it’s often unaware of it. Individually we can modify those electromagnetic vibrations to work as a subtle generator of good energy and revitalization of the planet. Remain more aware.
This year I’ll be giving more digital talks and engaging you in some of the open forums that I have planned. If you are interested in participating, please click here. Drop us a line and we’ll put you on the mailing list to alert you. inform you of the upcoming dates for those events.
I wish you all the best in the coming 12 months and look forward to your company again. I’m available at [email protected] if you need to speak with me.
Hi, I’m writing this while sitting under my mango tree. I never really understood why my first teacher, Swami Muktananda, was always so big on sitting under mango trees to meditate. You feel the presence in this tree. It’s a very old one. It’s nice to sit under it and not think too much about anything. But that’s difficult. Seeing as some thoughts came up, I thought I’d share them with you. They have to do with the ongoing ‘bone’ that I’ve been at, which is Jupiter and Saturn and this current, particularly rare conjunction. The exactitude of the conjunction is the closest they’ve been for many centuries.
When looking at the principles of Jupiter and Saturn, it got me thinking that these are opposite forces. In astrology, the principle of expansion and spiritual wisdom is shown by Jupiter. Whereas Saturn is more of a constrictive inward-looking planet. That expansive quality of Jupiter has been nipped in the bud by Saturn, and also by the fact that it’s been in Saturn’s sign, which is its weakest position.
So, these two principles reflect the binary nature of the universe. Expansion-contraction, two polarities like breathing in and out. Thinking is the same. There’s outward movement, as with breath, which brings awareness into the manifest or objective universe. Jupiter is that expensive process or outward movement. Contraction brings you back within. Saturn is that contractive or inward process.
I also got to thinking this relates to the principle of the movement of consciousness. Thinking tends to moves outwards toward the manifest or rather, creating the manifest physical domain. This relatesto nature or Prakriti as the Vedas say. The inner contractive or self-turned awareness is called Nivritti or the inner path, the inner movement.
This Saturn-Jupiter conjunction is going to lead to an amazing alchemical process of two supposedly opposing forces of nature coming together and unifying. It’s a balancing of that outward and inward movement. It relates to the astrological expression, a more philosophical and energetic sort of perspective.
Jupiter represents expansion as the material manifestation. The material expression of these planetary energies is what astrology generally talks about. And those important internal changes that take place are also a representation of a kind.
That does bring me back to the point because this is a turning point. A turning point for the human race. That turning point starts with each individual. And the turning point is neither left, right, straight ahead nor in a reverse direction. It’s the turning point of that awareness, the tipping point between Prakriti awareness being absorbed in outer events, or the Nivritti component, which is awareness being withdrawn back into pure subjectivity.
That happens naturally anyhow, with different creative and artistic pursuits. Even when you’re absorbed in the most mundane activities it happens but it’s not done consciously. Jupiter is very much about finding where you are in that process of your awareness. Where is it taking you inwardly, although expanding? I mean, just because awareness moves inward doesn’t mean that that’s necessarily a happy space, either.
A lot of people struggle when they get into meditation in the early stages. Because meditation is that inward-turned perception and awareness is beset with the gamut of internal and psychological processes. This is called grantha ( knot ) in yoga.
These are within the etheric, emotional, and psychological systems. These are all the accumulated past experiences, not just of this life, (if you subscribe to the dream philosophy of karma that this is real). If it’s a dream ( Maya ), then we talk about past lives, but we can only talk about those past lives in terms of the Universal dream. Once the dream collapses, the full awareness of that dream becomes obvious. If you subscribe to this doctrine, past karmas from all of those supposed lives are embedded within subtle channels of the human system. Yoga, mantras, and meditation, and other spiritual activities, break down those knots.
These are subtle channels or nadis as they are called are like blocked drains. You need a wire, that gadget to get down deep to clear those blockages. That gadget is what teachers called mantra. And this process is essentially one of self-awareness. It’s about bringing your attention to yourself.
The last couple of years, I’ve made some fairly mind-blowing observations. Even the most evolved amongst us can’t help ourselves. We become absorbed and enticed by this mesmeric outer movement of awareness.
In the root chakra, there’s a need for self-preservation. And that need for self-preservation is the propellant, the ‘going out’ – getting money, building a house, buying clothes for the kids etc. All of those day-to-day activities are included in that.
These processes are fuelled by the outward movement of awareness. This is the propane of desire. That’s what actually drives karma if you study it carefully. Going full-circle, it’s embedded in the attraction-repulsion process. Attraction, which is the cause of that Jupiter’s ‘expansion energy’ and repulsion, the ‘contraction energy’ or fear and apprehension of Saturn.
The universe is predicated on that very, very principle, the yoga sutras but the great sage Patanjali talks very much about this principle, this inherent propellant. This fuel that drives us that’s the desire. And that is enmeshed in this attraction-repulsion or what’s called raga-dvesha principle of attraction-repulsion.
The repulsion or fear is embedded in the biological and evolutionary makeup of all as self-preservation ( in the material dream ). And attraction, of course, is also embedded within us. It’s what you’re attracted to, due to the environment in which you’ve grown up. It’s those ingrained belief systems. These are the things that have fuelled all these other aspects of karma and are determining your experience. That is why this inward movement, the pull from within is the primary driver of dispassion and spiritual endeavour. It’s based on the notion of ‘being done with it once and for all’.
My Grandmaster used to say that everyone is on the train (of life). Everyone’s going to get to the destination. And so someone asked ‘well, what’s the difference between me and you? ‘He replied, “I fell asleep on the train. While others were enjoying the sights and scenery, getting off at the next station, sightseeing, getting back on for the next leg of the trip, I fell asleep and mysteriously woke up at the destination”.
It’s a New Year, Scorpio and with it comes amazing opportunities. At the same time, additional responsibilities, especially of a domestic nature must be expected. Over the past two and a half years you’ve been somewhat constricted in your local surroundings. This is a result of Saturn transiting your third house. It has only recently just moved to your fourth house.
This has meant you’ve recently had to make adjustments in your lifestyle. This is not only in the way you relate to others, especially your family members but also in terms of the way you relate to yourself. This has been a transitional period and now Saturn is transiting Aquarius along with Jupiter.
This means you should be in better shape to take charge and steer your domestic life in the direction you’ve always wanted to.
Remove sluggishness and a lack of enthusiasm from your vocabulary
Last year was a shocker. With the moves of Jupiter and Saturn, a whole new focus takes place. This doesn’t necessarily take the pressure off but with consistency, determination and hard work you can make the next twelve months an important turning point in your life.
You must remove sluggishness, lethargy and lack of enthusiasm from your vocabulary. You’ve been tired physically and mentally.
No doubt, the COVID pandemic hasn’t helped. But your challenge now has a great deal to do with how you manage your energies, relationships and interactions with others generally.
As the year commences, the Sun, Mercury and transformative Pluto combine to bring powerful forces to bear upon your third house of communications. Saying that this impacts your life is somewhat a simplistic view of what these planets bring.
The third house of your horoscope is ruled by Saturn and has a great deal to do with the way you communicate ideas, think and negotiate. This also relates to money, resources and how you improve these in your life. Resources generally, will be viewed very differently. If in the past you’ve been wasteful, now, you’ll value the time and effort put into making money. You’ll start to see a direct link between these two facets of your life.
What’s also interesting to note is that by June, Mars and Pluto will be in an exact opposition containing all the other planets of the zodiac. It’s going to be hard for you not to feel some sort of pressure, even anger over some situation. Pluto is will radically impact contracts and important communications. Negotiating your way out of any financial issue is the only option for you.
Tie up any loose ends and unfinished business at home
On the 21st and 26th of June, Jupiter retrogrades along with Neptune. Jupiter will transit back into your fourth house of family affairs to tie up any loose ends and unfinished business at home. Jupiter will move back out of the fourth house after its station with direct movement on the 18th of October. It doesn’t get back out of your fourth house until after the 29th of December.
This means that much of the last part of the year is going to be a reassessment of these important domestic factors. You’re not going to be able to avoid that.
On the 19th of November, an additional lunar eclipse takes place and is very important.
It brings the focus back onto your relationships. The Sun and Moon will be opposite each other along the first and seventh house axis. You’ll also note that Mars and Uranus, with Mercury, take part in this eclipse. With many opposing forces. It seems that one of the main lessons this year is to keep your feelings, especially anger, under control.
There is a final Eclipse on December 4. That solar eclipse again transits back into your second house of finance. Along with Mercury, there’s a square aspect occurs that involves Neptune in your fifth house of speculation. Neptune is the planet that creates confusion if you aren’t careful. This aspect also warns that you must not believe everything said to you. Neptune is notorious for deception but by others and by one’s self.
All of these eclipses demand attention to resolve the problems recurring in your life. As shown from these transits, your relationships and finances are very intimately linked.
You need to untangle the threads of the misunderstanding if they are there.
You must work with Neptune to release yourself from projected ideas and confusing states of mind.
On that point, Neptune is one of the primary psychic planets. You must trust your intuition if you don’t feel comfortable dealing with someone.
It’s quite likely that intuition will be 100% correct.
Trust your intuition
Mars is transiting your Sun sign in the latter part of the year. It makes an excellent aspect to Neptune. At this time, you can trust your intuition. Your hunches will be correct. It’s through this mechanism that you somehow work your way out of the dilemma of ideals versus practical solutions.
Mars indeed offers the resources, skills and the energy to break free of self-limiting concepts and circumstances that have been holding you back for too long. This is where an energetic practical planet works with a spiritual, otherworldly planet. The outcome can be excellent if you blend those forces wisely.
Being frugal with money is only the tip of the iceberg. You’ll start to learn that thriftiness and a minimalist approach to speech, time and love are a key to opening up greater possibilities within yourself. You’ll be making use of your resources more productively and appreciatively. In short, all of these aspects are going to have a telling effect on your overall self-esteem.
Much of this is going to hinge on how you handle your family life. If you’ve not been happy in your personal life, this will undermine your efforts professionally and socially. The North Node starts the year transiting the eighth house of self-transformation.
This is a full influence on the fourth house in those family matters we are talking about. It shows you’re willing to open yourself up to new forms of learning, to developing your skill sets and generally broadening your understanding of interpersonal relationships. This is going to be key in the next 12 months.
Romance and Friendship
Mercury is the planet responsible for your friendships and social connections with Venus ruling your seventh house of marital and long-term relationships. Jupiter and Neptune are the principal governors of your romance and love affairs, ruling your fifth house these houses are important.
And when these planets in particular, which rule these houses influence them, your friendships, love affairs and marital affairs also come to the fore. Venus and Mercury make transits to the seventh house on the April 15 and 19 respectively.
Place more importance on communication and working through your differences
You place more importance on communication and working through your differences. At this time, it’s fortunate that Venus kicks in and stimulates your romance. Your seventh house is one of an earthy and practical nature. It is Taurus.
You are looking to build secure relationships during this period. You want your vision of the future to converge with that of your partner. To date, there may have been differences in your goals. During this period, you will be looking at working together as a team so that your efforts are consolidated.
These two planets follow up with a more intimate tone in May when they transit your eighth house on the 4th and 9th of May respectively.
Conversations focus on love, intimacy and sexuality. It’s time to deepen your love affair through mutual pleasure and deeper understanding.
Venus and Mercury trek through the 11th house of your horoscope on the 22nd of July and 12th of August. This period is excellent for stimulating new friends and social activities. In the first and second weeks of July, you must be careful not to allow the square aspect of Mercury and Neptune to confuse issues.
Communications may slide sideways listen more carefully.Do not assume you understand what the other person is saying. Superficially all may seem okay but it’s not a bad idea to ask for clarification.
Listen carefully to what your partner is saying
The Lunar Eclipse on November 19 was briefly touched on in the introduction to your 2021 reading. Any sort of Eclipse is particularly powerful but because this one takes place in your seventh house of marriage. It will be very telling about your relationships. Listen carefully to what your partner is saying. In the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, you may find yourself distracted and unavailable.
This takes place on the 19th of November. Two days later, Mercury makes a square aspect to Jupiter. love, friendship and long term committed relationships may be at a crossroads. Some of the responsibilities you have in this area may collide. Clearly defining what friendship and romance is might be part of your challenge at this time
On either side of the cusp of Taurus, Mars and Uranus also hover as 2021 starts. Taurus relates to your marriage and significant partnerships. This is a destabilizing influence. Unexpected events take place in your relationships this year. Some of those events may be good, some not so good. It all depends on the attitude you take and how you perceive things.
The square aspect of Saturn to Uranus shows where the problem may lie at its root. Saturn is, after all, a conservative and traditional style planet. Whereas Uranus is progressive, freedom-loving and independent. These two aspects of life may be at odds as far as your intimate relationships are concerned.
Jupiter is also making its bid for freedom
The full impact of this aspect doesn’t manifest until the 18th of February. But before that, around January 18, Jupiter is also making its bid for freedom. Both of these planets tenant your fourth house which relates to your domestic and living circumstances.
You will be at odds with your partner over the house you live in the locality, the style and other aspects of your family ideals. This needs to be worked on early in the year. There’s no point letting this fester as the Mars and Uranus component can cause things to become explosive later on.
By May, Uranus makes a trine aspect to the mid part of Scorpio. This shows that as the year progresses, you feel a little more confident in directing your freedom-loving urges into acceptable channels. Communication should start to improve by the 14th of May when Jupiter transits the sign of Pisces, albeit briefly, the aspect on your sun sign is notable and the positive one Jupiter’s influence is usually considered Benayoun and uplifting you’re going to need some good fortune from this planet. Before the 23rd of May when Saturn goes retrograde, and then the lunar eclipse of 26th of May takes place.
Figure out your financial direction in life
At this time a cluster of planets in your eighth house of shared resources precariously balances the Moon in your second house of income. This is the time when you need to put your head together with your loved ones and figure out your financial direction in life. There may be some pressure on you as Mercury, Venus, North node and The Sun crowd your eighth house.
the eighth house also has to do with marriage, intimacy and sexuality.
Mercury and Venus are exceptionally good planets when it comes to communicating your feelings. That’s all-important at this time. The other major celestial event is the transit of the Sun on the 10th of June. This is a solar eclipse following closely on the heels of that lunar eclipse just mentioned it again takes place in your eighth house. So, you can see the mid part of the year is strongly focused on money, finance, and any other resources that are shared.

Career and Finance
Although the Sun, your career planet, is due for some difficult aspects in the first month or so of the year you can use this to your advantage. This is because it makes contact with the hard taskmaster Saturn, indicating greater responsibilities ahead. This takes place in your fourth house of family and property matters. There may be issues that you need to deal with in this area of your life.
Tackling those greater responsibilities with a more cheerful attitude
Tackling those greater responsibilities with a more cheerful attitude can help you get on top of what initially seems like an insurmountable situation. Because these domestic issues weigh so heavily on your heart, you can’t allow it to impact your work. Because you have a strong drive to achieve new heights in your profession in 2021 you must segregate these two areas of your life.
This year, you are driven to achieve an immense amount. This is shown by Mars and its hard aspects in the early part of the year on the 23rd of January. Mars squares Jupiter while transiting your seventh house, which is the house of partnerships.
Jupiter is sitting in your fourth house of family and property, there may be a need to review the 80/20 rule. That is where is all your energy going this year? What sort of a return are you getting for the effort you make?
If you’re spending inordinate amounts of time trying to achieve something, with little result, you might need to change that equation. Look at getting an 80% return for just 20% input.
With the Sun making conjunction of Jupiter on the 29th of January, some good fortune comes your way notwithstanding the huge efforts you are making. Some say that luck is simply the convergence of inspiration, perspiration, and opportunity. Jump at any opportunity you experience during this transit
The Sun transits your sixth house on March 26 tasks has to do with your work activities and the people you work with. You will make tremendous efforts throughout March and April. And you can expect some handsome results with Mars training Jupiter on April 17. This may be related to some partnership efforts as the Sun moves into your seventh house during this cycle.
Be careful about where you park your money
With the Sun transiting your eighth house on May 21 it coincides with the right angle to Jupiter in your fifth house of speculation. You must be careful about where you park your money. You might expect to receive copious financial returns only to find that the results are less than favourable. It’s okay to take a gamble occasionally but do so being fully informed about the downside as well.
The Lunar result the lunar eclipse on May 26 also reveals information regarding your second house of income. The eclipse will cause you to reappraise your finances. The following Eclipse shortly after on June 10th. In your eighth house of shared resources is also a key turning point in your financial attitudes. It’s quite likely that whatever you decide upon, will end up working in your favour. That’s because Mars transits your 10th house on June 11.
Just a day after the eclipse on the June 23 the Sun once again makes a trine aspect to Jupiter. This indicates a positive turn of luck due to Mars transiting your 10th house. The directional strength of Mars allows you to make an impression on your employers. As your leadership qualities are strong there are other opportunities for promotion as well. People will be looking to you to set an example.
Success when the Sun transits your 10th House
This is especially so in August when the Sun transits your 10th house. It makes its entrance on July 23. The hard aspects to your Sun and Jupiter indicate tremendous effort which, fortunately, should pay off.
Don’t expect this to be an overnight thing. It may take some additional time to make headway.
You must take care, especially towards the middle of September when Mars your ruler transits your 12th house. The Sun also makes its entry into the 12th house on September 23. This could be a low-key period where you need to recover from overexertion that can be in your work, exercise or through being overly emotional in your relationships.
Karma Luck and Spirituality
Because the Moon rules your higher mind and spirituality the lunar eclipses mentioned above will be significant milestones throughout the year. Those dates are May 26 and November 19. The eclipse on May 26 focuses your attention on material values. It does it in a reverse fashion, however. What this means is that you’re forced the question your motives in work, relationships and general associations with others.
The Happiness and security you are looking for don’t necessarily come from ‘things’
You will come to realise that happiness and security you are looking for don’t necessarily come from ’things’. Rather, the true value is about how you feel about yourself. This may also call into question the line of work you are doing. If what you’ve done is continue along the line of working on something that pays the bills but denies you happiness, that will start to change after this eclipse.
The same can be said for the eclipse takes place on November 19. Being in your zone of marriage and significant partnerships you may start to question the validity of some of the relationships you held as sacrosanct.
Often, unconsciously, relationships become a subtle form of emotional if not material barter. ‘I’ll do this if you do that’ is the undercurrent operating in most relationships.
You want a more progressive approach to your relationships
This year will be important in that you want a more progressive approach to your relationships. You can’t escape the fact that Uranus is still transiting this significant angular sector of your horoscope. It will break down the traditional values and cause you to see things from a completely different perspective.
The recent entry of Jupiter and Saturn into your fifth house of romance, creativity and love affairs is a big start to 2021. Whatever obstruction you felt in your creative output will now be lessened by the influence of Jupiter you’re starting to feel a greater creative output as the year commences. There’s also a marked influence on your romantic affairs, it could be that both your creative pursuits and romantic activities are somehow linked.
Throughout the coming year you continue to be idealistic, with intuitive Neptune still, strongly tenanting your sixth house of workplace activities there may be some problems as Venus makes a right angle to Neptune in the first week or so of the year. You mustn’t exaggerate your perception of people; you are likely to see more redeeming features in someone’s personality than others. This means you are being realistic.
If you are going to get on top of your work needs in 2021, you must look more deeply into the personality types of the people you work with and serve. Employees must also be watched carefully. If you happen to be an employer. There may be some deception or at least inadvertent mistakes that can cost you dearly. This is not a time to be taking your eye off the ball.
Uranus is now transiting your eighth house. This sector of your horoscope is particularly important as it is the principal house of intimacy and shared resources. There is an element of the unexpected connected to this planetary placement. As the year starts, the moon hammers you with a square aspect.
You might be caught up in some sort of frenzy or overreaction to friendships this year. This is more pronounced in the first few days of the new year than reactive. This was also represented by Mars still moving through your seventh house of principle relationships.
This shows a forceful partner with whom you must not go negotiate. Mars also receives tough aspects from Saturn and Jupiter as it exits the seventh house shortly after the new year begins on the 7th of January, it starts it’s plus conjunction to Uranus. This can be explosive in the bedroom and excellent if you want to demonstrate your love in a primal fashion that sensual and sexual energy will be easily reciprocated while you are in this planetary phase.
When it comes to finances, however, this can present some problems for you. There may be unexpected disputes that arise out of misunderstandings over cash, savings, loans and borrowings. You may be at loggerheads with your bank manager as the year starts to unfold. That’s why you should face any financial issues head-on from day one. You don’t want this situation to snowball.
The solar and lunar eclipses are very important milestones throughout the year. And this year, there are a few that will impact your life dramatically. In order, they are the lunar eclipse of May 26 take place in your third house.
This third house is primarily concerned with communications contracts and documentation. That’s why the earlier Mars and Uranus conjunction must be dealt with quickly and decisively. You don’t want to have contractual problems as these eclipses unfold.

Overly generous in your relationships?
In your relationships, you’ll feel as if you’re doing all the giving and it’s affecting your relationships. You don’t have to be overly generous. In fact, being a little more selfish now will produce more desirable results. Understanding the spiritual significance of your karmic relationships will intrigue you now. You see this as a way of improving them. Remember, however, that karma is a matter of intention rather than action in making judgements based purely on assumptions and appearances could cause you to overlook the truth.
Some of your emotional strategies may backfire at this time. You have to be careful to realise that if things come unstuck, it’s more than likely because of your own actions, and words. You have an opportunity to retrace your steps, to revise what you’ve done or said.
While moving in its retrograde motion Jupiter will indeed move back into your 7th house of marital affairs and business partnerships. This is highly significant as Jupiter is considered a lucky and expansive planet. At this point, you have a perfect opportunity to mend your ways and to smooth over any differences you’ve had in any number of relationships.

Venus and your luxurious tastes

There may be financial arguments when Mars moves into your 2nd house on July 30. Disagreements are quite likely. Work on creating impactful presentations that are not in any way contradictory to others. This often means using anecdotal historic events to get your point across. Don’t be too data-driven, dry or intellectual. Another important thing is to overcome repetition or monotony vocally. This increases your chance for success.
You have a greater desire to earn and capitalise on your talents while Mercury is transiting your 2nd house. This takes place on August 12 and continues till August 30. Don’t be afraid to push forward your ideas. They will be well received.
On August 16 Venus transits your 3rd house of contracts. Mercury is not far behind on August 30. This is the time to use your suave and persuasive talents to stitch up a deal. This period indicates that your negotiations will expand your circle of power but to do this you must learn some subtle spiritual laws which can help you do it. What’s more, you’ll be challenged to think more clearly in any discussions.
To enjoy more personal influence you need to discipline your mind and your body to create a larger, more attractive aura but this doesn’t mean steamrolling others in the process. Educate yourself and hang out with people who have the requisite knowledge in these areas.
Daring and pushy demands
With Mars transiting your 3rd house of September 15 and the Sun on September 23, you will be more daring and pushy in your demands. If you are in negotiations this is the time to step up your activities. You can turn up the heat and don’t be afraid to intimidate others respectfully. You’ll come out a winner.
One of the key transits in 2021 is Jupiter transiting into your 8th house of shared resources. Jupiter’s transit into your 8th house is significant and because it is one of your better planets brings with it good luck and possibly financial remuneration.
This transit is often associated with gifts, inheritances and legacies of all sorts. Outstanding loans, that is money that is owed to you, they finally are received. You may also be considering matters of insurance, banking generally and your retirement plan during this significant cycle. Joint investments are likely to be successful and shared holdings increase in value.
Karma Luck and Spirituality
You have a greater desire to achieve spiritual insights on April 23 when Mars transits your 12th house, and again on June 2 with Venus moving into the same sphere. Because Mars is an active planet, you’ll be physically engaged in helping others. This could be anything from helping a friend move, carrying their furniture, making your car available to doing yoga and different physical postures. Charity and yoga and meditation all fall under this same umbrella
On June 21 the Sun, the natural significator of spirituality also activate your 12th house. You could have powerful dreams and insights during this period. You’re questioning your faith. If this has to do with any sort of belief or religious concept, it’s easily fixed. The problem is when faith in your own self is undermined. That’s a trickier terrain to negotiate.
You have to be completely impartial in analysing yourself to extract the best from within. You mustn’t be afraid to bounce your ideas of others, even if you risk criticism or ridicule. This is the only way you are going to find and express the best in yourself. Anchor your dreams in reality, but allow imagination to soar.
Mercury and your intuitive insights
Mercury gives intuitive insights while it transits your 12th house. This takes place on July 12 and lasts for almost one month. Diarise your insights and dreams. You’ll be able to use these insights to practically improve your life. Pursuing your goals with a more intuitive touch helps deliver better results. This differentiates you from your competitors.
In other words, you need to make your work more unique. Imprint your personality and style on whatever you do. You need to co-create partnerships to maximize returns. Shared money will is a priority now. It could be a matter of renegotiating a deal. This next day or so is about throwing out old attitudes along with age-old outfits that are littering your wardrobe.
It’s a time of progress in your understanding and experience of life. You also come to a better understanding and acceptance of changes or transformations you’ve been going through, particularly in your love life.
This year is a particularly interesting one especially if you’re looking to break free of your past patterns and behaviour. As the year starts, Saturn is in the challenging square aspect to Uranus. The tension associated with this transit will be noticeable even as the year commences.
Saturn is structure whereas Uranus breaks down those structures and is a particularly revolutionary planet. Because of that, you may be finding it difficult to balance the tried and tested with more forward-thinking ideas.
The difficult aspect of Saturn to Uranus builds, leading up to February 18. You may be looking at ways to explore greater success and to do things on your terms. Unfortunately, you may be your own worst enemy. You’ll feel as if your wings have been clipped. Your confidence isn’t what it should be.
This is a period of personal adjustment, especially with the way you think. You may also need to look at your lifestyle habits and readjust those as well. Diet particularly may be part of the underlying problem which is abstracting your success.
The solar eclipse of June 10 occurs in your 12th house. This means the middle of the year is punctuated by a deeper spiritual sense. The 12th house has to do with meditation, solitude and retreat. It may be a time when you choose to connect with your higher self.
Your emotions may also be your worst enemy at this time. You’ll be seeking some sort of backdoor escape. You might be feeling suppressed, limited and hampered in everything that you try to do.
Until 2023, Saturn will be transiting your 8th house. This is the house of erotic and sensual energies. Your passions may need to be more structured at this time. You’re also seeking greater insight into what your partner’s needs are. Are they meeting yours? Somewhere along the line, you are going to have to work through the psychological barriers to being more intimate and to fulfilling you and your partner.
Often the way we perceive each other is not all the way our partners perceive themselves. Pleasing and may simply mean stepping out of your shoes for a while and becoming more compassionate. The 8th house is also related to life and death issues. It’s the house of self-transformation. The mysteries of life will intrigue you at this time and this cycle is about rebuilding your sense of self.
This 8th house also has a lot to do with your shared resources. Borrowings and loans are also governed by this transit. Could it be that you need to change the way you are dealing with finances and planning for your future security?
You will need to become more disciplined with the way you deal with money generally. This has to do with your future security and how you been managing your finances generally. Over and above this, the use or abuse of power may become an issue this year.
Up until May 14, Jupiter transits your 8th house. This accentuates what has been detailed above but also speaks of a more expansive approach to your finances and the finances of your partners. Jupiter is a lucky planet and therefore under this transit, up until this time, you may even be the recipient of some gift, inheritance or legacy. Winning money is also on the cards.
Romance and Friendship
Mars is your principal planet of romantic affairs with Venus ruling friendships and Saturn ruling your committed long-term relationships. Saturn is already been dealt with in the introduction but to see how your overall romance operates in 2021, let’s take a look at the transits of Mars and also the Sun and Venus, which also relate strongly to affairs of the heart.
On January 7 when Mars transits your 11th house, both friendship and material benefits come your way. You feel sociable and extroverted. You’ll seek friendship, especially with people who really know how to have a good time. Greater connections with unusual friends are shown by Mars making a conjunction with Uranus in 11th house on January 23.
These impulses should be checked, especially between January 23 when Mars square is Jupiter on February 25 with Mars making a trine of Pluto and then moving to your 12th house of secret activities on March 4.
As Venus transits the 7th house of your horoscope on January 9 you feel a resurgence of love for your partner and closest friends. The influence of Mars in the trine from Venus on January 10 makes you passionate. A creative spurt is likely during this period and your self-expression is peppered with brilliant insights and of course lovemaking. Use your creativity to improve your romantic life as well.
The hard aspect of Venus and Mars on February 20 shows that you are likely to be passionate about the wrong things. The conjunction of Venus and Neptune on March 14 also shows your extreme idealism. This goes for people as well as activities. Pick your mark well before embarking on any sort of romantic ‘adventure‘. As you can see, the first couple of months of the year are intense emotionally, socially and sexually.
Venus and friendships
Venus transits your 11th house of social activities and networking on April 15 making powerful conjunction to the disruptor, Uranus. Looking for unusual people will stimulate your mind and emotions. You might not have ventured out of your very tight circle of information or mental interests. Now, you have a chance to break free of those limitations.
There’s also a struggle between responsibilities to family and your social ambitions. Personal affairs and professional goals see more divergent. On the one hand, you’re inspired by your dreams. Remain aware of the practical demands of your day-to-day life.
On August 16 when Venus transits your 4th house you realise that you can’t keep postponing what needs to be done at home. Those domestic chores will never get done otherwise. It’s probably a good idea to allocate a large slab of time to get this out of the road.
Remove clutter to improve emotional circumstances
Hoarding, increased clutter and emotionally holding on to things, is subtly obstructing your emotional success. Minimalism seems to be your keyword during this cycle. It’s all about taking the initiative, that first step. Once you do this, you’ll realise that the task isn’t quite as humongous as you first thought. Getting the clutter out of the way creates space for love.
Venus makes a square to Pluto on September 6 but also makes a favourable aspect to Jupiter on the same date. On the 11th it moves to the romantic 5th house of your horoscope. The intensity of these aspects may be dampened by the hard aspect of Saturn on September 17. Romance is better than usual. You have the charisma to attract a potentially fun partner.
Choices may be available and this will be hard especially if two or even three offers are simultaneously on the table. A shift away from routine to a greater focus on your love life is likely. Get any tedious work out of the way first so you can fully enjoy your relationships. The aspect of Saturn may cause you to cool off and rethink some relationship.
Mars makes you more aggressive after September 15 with its transit in your 4th house. You have good reason to step up your demands on family members as shown by the trine to Saturn, square to Sun, trine to Jupiter and square to Pluto. All of these aspects take place between September 15 and October 22.
These above transits set the tone for an October 31 transit of Mars in your 5th house. With the square aspect of Saturn on November 11, you may be struggling to break free of some frustrating circumstance surrounding your love life. You are frustrated with someone and maybe bursting at the seams because of it. In response to this frustration, you could say and do things that you’ll regret.
Realise that even a kick up the pants isn’t going to get them moving in the direction you like, nor as fast as you’d prefer. You must understand that a leopard rarely changes its spots. Today, it may be a case of doing the job yourself if you need to get it done. The moral of the story is to not expect too much from unreliable people.
During November, love is in the air
Fortunately for the transit of Venus through your 7th house on November 5, much of the tension you feel can be offset by this wonderful soothing transit. The 7th house and the aspects of Venus to Uranus on the 19th indicate an innovative approach to solving your problems. At least, the last part of the year should yield some better results romantically.
The retrograde movement of Venus on December 19 and its conjunction with Pluto on the 25th warns that you should not be too obsessive or demanding of those you love. That may only serve to push them further away.
Career and Finance
The Sun and Mars are your principal career and finance planets. Studying their movements give you a good idea of what is likely to happen in your professional life in the coming months.
On or about March 4 you must be careful with your money. Mars transits your 12th house of excessive expenditure. You must contend with how and why you’re spending what you spend. You could feel like mud the morning after if you don’t curb your expenses.
Cutting back expenses is the only way for you to progress. You might need to completely shut out the world during this cycle as you don’t feel comfortable connecting with others. You may simply need to take a break for a while.
Notwithstanding these financial red flags, the transit of the Sun to your 10th house on March 20 is the best zone for your career elevation. Venus also adds its excellent vibrations on March 22 by joining the Sun in the upper part of your horoscope. Countering stress and work conflicts through some social activities will help. This reflects strongly on your chance of promotion or improved income. You could be over-reactive emotionally. You need to get on top of this.
In the eyes of others, you’ll need to prove your capacity in some way, with challenging situations. Allowing others to scrutinize your strengths and weaknesses makes you vulnerable but opens doors. An older man and his problems require some extra time and sacrifice on your part.
The Sun transits your first house on June 21. Professional relationships should run smoothly but also require a little management now. This is also a good time to concentrate on financial affairs or work which involves creative activity. Your energy and drive will be strong. Your health will also support your professional efforts.
Creating a more attractive and appealing work environment will please you now and help increase output. Your personal views mustn’t get mixed up with professional duties. When Mars makes its opposition aspect to Saturn on July 1, you may find yourself at odds with others it may be a difficult time. You may need to hold back from speaking your mind on certain issues, as much as you want to.
The Sun: The power and attraction
When the Sun transits your finance sector on June 23 you’ll start to feel the power of attraction once again. This must be used with as much clever and well-orchestrated business instinct as you can muster. It’s going to give you leverage. You’ll hold a crowd, teach or even mentor others along the lines of your own choosing.
In your professional arena, you could develop a taste for training and mediation. Any activity requiring you to speak or present convincingly should be considered. It’s the start of additional income. All these positive influences on your finances are indicated by the excellent trine aspect of the Sun to Jupiter.
Contracts will take precedence when the Sun transits your 3rd house on August 23. Contracts, common negotiations and other interactions require careful handling. Be careful that others aren’t taking advantage of you. It may be hard to press on but if the difficulty is too great to take a few short breaks to recharge your batteries.
Your popularity is strong as is your public approval and the Sun trine’s Uranus on September 7. You have a few days of powerful energy on which to capitalise. Spruce up your outfit, put on a new hairdo and look your best as unexpected opportunities require you to make a lasting impression on those you meet.
There may be some uncertainty about how you feel about your career when the Sun opposes Neptune on September 14. You need more clarity so it’s the perfect time to sit down and put pen to paper and plan your course of action professionally.
With the Sun transiting your 6th house November 22 and making productive conjunction to Mercury on November 29 energy your tasks is a priority. There are pressing deadlines but there needn’t be. The universe could be telling you to slow down and smell a few roses along the way. Avoid getting hot under the collar.
Business partnerships flourish right before Christmas on the 22nd, as the Sun enters your 7th house of business collaboration and partnerships. This follows the Venus and Mercury transits into the same place on November 5 and December 14 respectively. You can successfully combine your business and social activities at this time.
Karma Luck and Spirituality
Neptune indicates two very important dates in 2021 when your spiritual evolution may be accelerated. They are June 26 and December 1. Neptune goes retrograde and then direct on these dates. This occurs in your 9th house, one of the most spiritual directions of your horoscope.
At this time your intuitive powers are turned up so trust your first impressions. Stay away from people and places that could pollute the purity of your ‘auric’ clarity. If you’re into meditation or spirituality – today’s the day!
Powerful dreams also need to be heeded. Intuition is strong around these times. You must see if there is some way to transpose these insights into your practical, day-to-day life. Learn to distinguish the genuine from the fake.
Jupiter is also a primary spiritual planet and accentuates your spiritual activities and good karma particularly when it enters your 9th house on May 14. This house, along with the 5th house regulates your past karma and deeds. It will determine your net karmic credits and debits.
Powerful positive karma
Powerful positive karma is likely when Mars transits your 5th house on October 31. This follows the transit of the Sun to the 5th house on October 23. The results of your past life and actions earlier in this life start to come to fruition now. You might find yourself the recipient of some good luck was of effortless achievement in love, work and personal development.
Scattered like gems across the sub-continent of India and Sri Lanka, palm leaf archives are reputedly 3,000 years old. They are said to contain virtually flawless accounts of the lives and destinies of each of us.
On these palm leaves, the intricate Sanskrit dialogues between divinely inspired astrologers and their protégés are documented. Myriads of lives are chronologically detailed from birth to death, with not only precise dates and times of life events but genealogical family names also being recorded therein.
From a mere thumbprint, the exact leaf of destiny will be painstakingly uncovered from which are revealed with breathtaking accuracy, the individual’s name, date and time of the exact moment of birth. Furthermore, all the major life events are rattled off with extraordinary precision down to the “fateful” date of death, if one is brave enough to open that particular chapter. It is just one of 16 chapters written for each person.
During my third visit to India in 1999, I was able to experience the remarkable truth of astrology and the leaves first hand. Each and every detail of my life, family names and even inner secrets were revealed in pristine clarity to me.
It raises the fundamental and age-old question of destiny versus free will. How can it be? Our life histories and choices outlined like a soap opera over 30 centuries ago? My investigations of one such archive on the outskirts of Madras in Pallavaram, however incredulous it may seem, were precisely as I have described. Unbelievable to say the least. But true in every respect! And all from my thumbprint – nothing else!!
There, the purohit or priest as a custodian of his family’s archive of Nadi leaves ( as they are referred to ) expertly reveals all. This archive is of the famous Astrologer Sage Vasistha, one of the seven rishis or sages outlining our histories. The sage addresses questions about the individual in question and what events are to take place till death. Past, present and future births are also recorded and the most impeccable details are revealed.
The question may be asked of genetic scientists as to the ‘free will’ an individual truly has, given recent genome research. And what did the Sapta Rishis or seven sages of India in their revelations know that geneticists may today learn from? We should meticulously scrutinise the ramifications of this knowledge and how it may impact on future western thought and culture.
I once believed in free will. That was until 1999 came along. Of course, free will is what helps determine you’re going to be successful and happy. There’s a sense of intention associated with success. It seems to make perfect sense that successful people unless they are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, must have worked extremely hard to achieve the result they did.
Travelling to India quickly changed my mind. The ancient karmic Akashik records changed all that. The ancient Palmyra leaves upon which all the destinies of each human being are written was made available to me. Unlike normal astrology, the client simply provides their thumbprints, both right and left. Thereafter a bundle of leaves, apparently several thousand years old are ferreted out.
These records are like large rulers, stiff, thick parchment-like leaves with unusual characters, possibly Sanskrit, Dravidian or ancient Tamil Nadu language. After some poking around with a few superficial questions, my name was provided. When my name was mentioned and thereafter my mother, fathers’ and spouse’s name I quickly sat up in my chair, vertically erect and ready to start paying attention to what the priest was about to tell me.
At that time I was travelling with my client who till today is one of my best friends. He’s since made his name as an up-and-coming Hollywood film producer. He’d worked with the likes of Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt, Richard Gere and many other A-list actors. We quickly turned our heads to each other and somewhat loudly whispered WTF!
The reader continued, “Your father is no longer alive, and you were separated from your mother in infancy”. “You were brought up by others……” For over forty minutes he reeled off incredibly precise prediction after prediction – the past, present and also future destiny forecasts which were revealed with incredible fluidity. It was surreal. All written in black and white, there on those dusty ancient leaves! It was my life on a leaf.
Uncanny future readings
He continued, “You will leave your current spouse, also your country of birth and move to the land in the north-west. Not only that, you will move to a provincial region and live like a farmer, reclusive to some extent.” At this point Bill and I again both stared at each other in disbelief. We both uttered a double WTF, “That can’t possibly be right.” I scowled as he went on, “You’ll meet and marry a woman much younger than you and will start a family with her.
In this later age of your life, you will have a daughter with whom you will become extremely close”. This was starting to sound ridiculous! I was frantically taking notes and on several occasions since, went back to have more detailed readings and even took other somewhat sceptical friends and clients to verify what I had experienced. One senator also accompanied me in 2014 and nearly fell off her chair when all her family names were also read off the leaves.
That was in 1999. It’s now nearly 20 years later and looking back I’m still absolutely astonished by the accuracy of all the forecasts made. I indeed departed Australia in 2010 and moved to the Philippines where I met my current wife. We were married in 2012 and we had a daughter, Alyana Tara, who is the love of my life. We live two hours out of Manila, in the rural province of Batangas on a quarter acre of land upon which we have many tropical fruit trees. We often produce a surplus of fruit so my wife and gardener sell that food at the local produce market. This was obviously the north-west country alluded to in the leaves.
Since that time, without exception, everything that was predicted has come to pass, precisely, as written in the leaf. There are fourteen chapters available for each and everyone who dares delve into them. One could be sceptical regarding the past and I must admit I spent considerable time trying to figure out how they may have solicited that information somewhere, somehow.
Although that may have been a distinct possibility, it’s the future forecasts which were impeccably correct and in no way could have been guessed with such accuracy. This mystery still to this day leaves me dumbfounded. As a result, I’ve spent the past 20 years investigating the methodologies of these nadi granthas and many of the principles bear out as I can attest to through my practice as a professional astrologer.
Your past life is also documented
I must say it was fascinating having chapter 9 regarding my past life experiences laid bare along with other more mystical aspects of my destiny. Chapter 8 relates to one’s date, time and place of death, including the manner in which your body will be disposed of and who will be there. Chapter 12 was very interesting in that it gives an insight into the condition of one’s spiritual self, and at the time of death what precisely your experience of death will be like. Scary stuff to most I think you’d agree.
This was a remarkable eye-opener along with all m numerous any other aspects of this fascinating astrological anomaly. My life was indeed written on a leaf and that everything on that leaf, including the date and time of my birth and death along with my horoscope which was drawn from my thumbprint, were included in this account. Incidentally, the horoscope drawn from my thumbprint is as accurate as any computer-generated horoscope. Unbelievable.
The accounts of our lives in this manner are given in the context of the great sage and his ring of disciples. Speaking about the person to whom the thumbprint relates to in a teacher-student dialogue goes something like this: “Master, tell us about this man who has 3 circles and a triangle on his thumb. What is his fate? Please do tell”. In this way, the arguments go to fro between master and disciples and the leaf readings are done giving the astrological principles as a means of substantiating what is said by the sage.
Suffice to say that the court case predicted, the loss of money and problematic business issues, the insertion and replacement of parts in my body (2 heart attacks in late 2017 and surgery and also dental implants), and other incredibly accurate events pinpointedly given, led me to the conclusion that if all of this information was contained in the leaf, written thousands of years ago, what did I, as an individual person have to do with it?
The future is fixed
From that point onwards I thought deeply about this and it substantiated what another great sage by the name of Ramana said about destiny:
“Try as hard as you will to make something happen in life, if it isn’t destined to happen it won’t, yet try as hard as you can to stop something happening, if it’s meant to happen, it will”.
We will explore some of these most fascinating components and how one can simultaneously juggle both and live a life of artistry, being in love with the role that one has to play without becoming at all attached to it.
The point of all this, of course, is that to be happy, at some point you must open up the can of worms called fate versus destiny to understand your life more fully. If your life is indeed written in the stars, on your palm, or on a dusty old leaf in India, where do you, as an individual, with so-called volition fit into the picture and if your life is already mapped out what’s the point of making any effort? Let’s look at these questions in more depth as we continue. Believe it or not, fate and free will can, through creative living, be easily reconciled.
The important point to note, however, is that the quality which distinguishes conjugal love from any other sort of love is passion. And what distinguishes your life being an extraordinary one from the millions and millions which aren’t, is also determined by your passion. Falling in love is concomitant with the notion of being passionate, intensely absorbed and attentive to the object of your love. When you make that object of love your own life, a truly remarkable transformation takes place.
Example of Nadi reading
These readings are done in a very precise and snappy way. There is very little embellishment and the issue at hand is on point. Here are 2 chapters that are given in an example reading.
12th chapter regarding spiritual emancipation in this life
Good speech and effective words are uttered from his mouth due to good karma. He will have good support from others. The time that the reading is being done there will, however, be unfortunate obstacles to his attaining spiritual knowledge.
He is blessed to meet holy men and gurus. They will help his progress due to their guidelines and blessings. Spiritual power will increase more and more. By following their dictates he will be able to attain spiritual emancipation in this life.
A debate between the teacher and the student in the Nadi dialogue over his current transits were discussed. It was asked by one student about the effects of the negative planets. It was said that this was from his previous birth. A further question was posed: how can he possibly obtain Moksha?
The Sage replied: Worldly pleasures will not block his path to salvation nor will his material pursuits. Confusion and lack of peace will be experienced due to these effects. This will also not affect the blessings of a holy man. He receives blessings while taking long journeys. To overcome these problems the astrological and spiritual remedies have been given and they will help. The negative effects will be removed as a result.

Chapter 10 career
In his work, counselling people is the method through which he will earn. He will grow in this way, much to the envy of others.
How can he enjoy these benefits with the negative results from the previous life? Lack of confidence and problems in his business inhibit his steady progress for a period of time. There will also be some monetary loss.

Pluto continues making its way through your 8th house of deeper psychological transformation and spirituality, 2021 will be a breakthrough year for you. This shows you are working at changing yourself for the better. It’s about breaking through those habits that have held you back for so long. That’s not necessarily going to be an easy task but if you are sincere you will see some significant results.
The 8th house is also a zone of intimacy. Transformations take place in your personal life. This also extends to the way you share your material resources, not just your intimate moments. After April 28 Pluto makes its retrograde move. This means the process will intensify for some months after this. It may also indicate some significant changes in your most important relationships.
On 5th and 15th of January Pluto is transited by the Sun and Mercury. This steps up communication and discussions which will focus on how to improve your relationships throughout this year. It’s your partner on board? Hopefully, that will be the case. It takes 2 to tango. Improving your knowledge about sexuality, intimacy and better personal relations is on the cards as well.
These transits are likely to be intense. Because of the disruptive influence of Uranus in your 12th house, you need to be mindful of just how much you give to others. This year is therefore about balance in terms of giving your time, energy and even money to people. This includes family members who may find it easy to lean on you because of your generous nature.
There is another positive omen as 2021 gets underway is the strong angular position of Venus in your 7th house of relationships. Because it is so closely connected with your South node, much of the past karma of your relationships will be floating to the surface. Venus in itself is good positive energy for you. Don’t let the past superimpose on the present, however. If you are conscious, your catcher self-doubt and realise that dragging the past into your present relationships is a recipe for disaster.
As a result of the transit of Jupiter in your 9th house of luck and good karma, 2021 should generally offer you some great breaks. With the square aspect to Uranus, unexpected opportunities arise and you should be quick to pounce on them. They will be lucky chances but not at all what you had imagined. New educational opportunities are also included in this transit.
Employers or business associates may subsidise these new courses or educational degrees. Because finances are generally ruled by Jupiter your income might also see a nice lift. You should be well paid for the work that you do in the coming months.
Eclipses in 2021 for Gemini
Several lunar eclipses occur this year. On May 26 and also November 19 these celestial events have a big impact on you. The first takes place in Sagittarius, your marital sector and Gemini, your Sun sign. We’ve already discussed how important your relationships will be this year. Because of the transit of the South Node, it brings up your past. You are forced to work on your personal shortcomings in spite of yourself.
The first lunar eclipse is associated with your 7th house of significant relationships. Eclipses always take place on one of the nodes-either the North or South node. Both of these are deeply connected with your future and past karma. That is why I am making such a big point of this. This occurs at the end of the 2nd quarter of the year but will have a marked influence on you throughout the remaining months of 2021.
The second lunar eclipse occurs in your 12th house. This has also been touched on in this introduction. The 12th house apart from reflecting your generosity and charitable nature have to do with spirituality. Because of this, you will be interested in deepening your spiritual insight and understanding towards the end of the year. It may be time to take yourself out of the day-to-day hustle and bustle. Spend some time alone, get back in touch with nature and reconnect with your higher self.
The transits of Jupiter are always important on a year-to-year basis. Leading up to January 18 Jupiter makes a square aspect to Uranus. This means the year starts off with a bang! You want independence and you’ll be looking for ways in which to assert that in every department of your life.
Jupiter is favourable to the Sun around March 13. This is a good karma aspect bringing happiness and good fortune. Try to capitalise on this especially because Saturn, friendly planet to you is in connection to Jupiter at this time as well. This is a junction point of your past and future karma. Use the wisdom of your past to springboard into a better future.
Jupiter makes its way into your 10th house of career and professional opportunities on May 14. This will be short-lived as it does an about-face soon after. On June 21 Jupiter goes retrograde. You must be careful that all the good work you’ve accomplished in your professional sphere isn’t all undone. You have to be more meticulous around this time and not leave anything to chance.. Jupiter’s transit through your professional sphere continues till it again goes direct on October 18. Your business relationships will also come under scrutiny. Jupiter’s influence on your 3rd house of communication relates to the way you negotiate and also convey your ideas to others. Its expansive nature means that you can expect a more optimistic cycle with its presence here. Your business relationships will feel the benefits of this incredible transit.
The 7th house also relates to business partnerships and the general public. These transits activate your popularity and give you a better sense of what the general public, including your clients, might want. If you’re actively involved in sales or generally dealing with the public, you’ll find a much better response to your style.
Romance and Friendship
Jupiter is your principal planet of relationship. It governs your long-term committed relationships including marriage or de facto live-in arrangements. While it transits your 9th house throughout 2021 you can expect a much better connection with the one you love. After having transited through the 8th house over the previous year, it shows that there have been some important developments in your love life.
The placement of Venus in your 7th house at the outset of the year is a great kickoff 2021. It shows your love and commitment is strong. You also want to spend more time with your lover.
With the transit of Neptune in your 10th house it’s likely there will be some confusion surrounding how you feel about yourself. As the relationship you have with your own being is the most important relationship of all, it’s important you get this right. There are 2 significant transits of Neptune this year. They are its stationary and direct motion. Those changes occur on June 26 when Neptune goes retrograde in its own sign of Pisces.
Retrogression usually means you are going to review something. In this case, it has to do with your own inner happiness and moral choices. This retrograde motion will continue up until December 1 at which point it will go direct. Throughout this period you will be thinking about who you are and how you can best deal with the people you want to be with.
There may be aspects of your own personality that need to be adjusted so that you can attract a better quality of person into your life. This applies equally to your social life as it does to your intimate personal relationships. It’s influence on your 4th house also calls into question your relationship with family members.
Mars starts the year in your 11th house. This is an aggressive planet which can show there are some problems in your social sphere. Someone or more friends may be aggressive and this could cause you to recoil from your connection with them. By January 7 it also makes a challenging aspect to Saturn. You will be extremely frustrated and no doubt angry during this transit. You will rethink your social agenda. Whatever you try to do maybe opposed even if you are trying to make peace. This could cause you to look for a new circle of friends at least in the first part of the year.
Friendships are challenging at the outset
When Mars makes a conjunction to Uranus you might find yourself bottling a lot of feelings. That’s because this conjunction takes place in your 12th house. The 12th house is the hidden part of your horoscope and could show that you will be brooding rather than speaking up about any dissatisfaction you are feeling in your relationships.
Furthermore, Jupiter makes a challenging connection to Uranus on the 23rd. If you’ve been feeling frustrated you are likely to do something out of the ordinary now. That may come out of the left of the field and will surprise everyone not only you. You want to be independent and will do things you haven’t tried before. You’ll be looking to expand your social circle but also to seek out people who are a little offbeat and unique in their views.
On the 18th and 25th the Sun and Venus, transit the 10th house. Although you’ll be busy workwise, it’s also quite likely you will be finding a crossover between your social affairs and the work that you do. This should be a time when you meet new friends and acquaintances through mutual connections in your workplace. Some of you, if you are lucky enough and other transits in your personal birth chart agree, may meet someone that can become a true romantic partner.
Domestic activities heat up
The 4th zone of your Sun sign chart has to do with your family affairs. Venus transits here on July 22. Mars follows it closely after on July 30. This indicates a mixture of energies in your domestic sphere. Mars and Venus make you passionate for family and friends. It generally shows your inner emotional life is also more animated and demonstrative. You may want to show your love by expressing it through gifts and other familial actions.
With Venus in this part of your chart, you will also want to entertain friends, lovers and family in the comfort of your own home. This will continue for a while because on August 12 and 23rd, Mercury in the Sun both respectively transit this area as well. July and August will therefore be more concerned with your home life rather than actively being out partying or clubbing with friends.
If you’re curious to find out about your love affairs, soulmates and other emotional opportunities, the transit of Venus deliberate on August 16 is a great time to make yourself available. Mercury also makes its way into the same area on August 30. Mars and Sun really pump you up on September 15 and 23 respectively. These fire planets indicate access passion, competitiveness and unbridled sexual desire.
Overall this is one of the best periods of the year to stake your claim on the one you love. If you have your eye on someone this latter part of the year promises to be fulfilling and very sexy too.
In the last quarter of 2021, the same above 3 planets make an even bolder statement romantically as they transit your 7th house of love and marriage. Venus transits the 7th house of Sagittarius on October 7. This is a return to where it was as the year started. For those seeking long-term commitment or even marriage, Venus often makes it happen. Those attached already can expect the last part of the year to be again, one of love and deep affection.
Career and Finance
You’re focused on work this year. Not just any old work. You’ve already decided you want to achieve a huge amount and that shown by the square aspect of Mars and Jupiter. That occurs on January 23 and sets the trend for the rest of the year. You will get great results from this because there are also supporting aspects to the Sun and Pluto on January 2018 February 25. Your physical energy is strong and your drive and willpower and fuel to your ambitions.
Business partnerships are looking good this year. Studying the planets transiting the 7th house can be very revealing. In this respect, the May 26 lunar eclipse will be a very powerful marker for your finances. The reason this is so is that the Moon rules your 2nd house of income. The eclipses herald big turning points in your business life. Mark this in your diary is an important juncture in 2021.
The solar eclipse of June 10
There is a solar eclipse soon after, on June 10. This takes place in your Sun sign and it, therefore, speaks loads about how you are primarily the most important ingredient in your professional or personal affairs. How you conduct yourself and manage your personal energies will be very telling this year. You may decide to change your attire, your personality or even your job. The eclipse takes you into yourself. You will want to dig deeply into those best parts of your nature. You are committed to being successful.
For those of you in business, the 11th house is important in determining the amount of profit you can make. The Moon makes its conjunction with the Sun on April 12 in this very area. You may be looking at new business ideas which trigger fresh sources of income.
The new Moon in January in Capricorn shows that you will be looking to become savvier in your business relationships. This takes place in your 8th house which has to do with banking, finance and the way in which you share the money and resources of other people.
Your year is not without its fair share of opposition and strain. On June 6 Mars opposes Pluto. You could be obsessing about earning as much money as you can. Don’t forget that Mars as well as ruling your profitability, also relates to friendships. You don’t want to burn friends nor get people offside, generally. If you’re angry or frustrated it’s best to step aside for a while until the dust settles.
Hard work is likely to be the dominant feature of your life after July 1 when Mars makes an opposition to Saturn in July for a square to Uranus. You’ll be torn between doing things in the old-fashioned traditional way or breaking ranks and attempting something new, even avant-garde. You want something cutting-edge but not everyone is going to be able to keep up with you.
The new Moons in critical finance sectors of your horoscope can also be very revealing. They show when you are likely to see big turning points in your financial timeline. A very important new Moon in Leo, your 3rd house of contracts and negotiations occurs on August 9. These planetary aspects point to new opportunities but also with the opposition to Jupiter, a certain amount of over-optimism is likely. Keep it real and always look at the fine print.
Throughout September October there may be some pressure on you workwise. It’s important for you not to overdo it. You could be burning the midnight oil with Venus transiting through Scorpio, your 6th house of work environments of September 11. On October 23 the son and then on October 31, Mars, also make their impact on this area.
The fiery planets like Sun and Mars can cause all sorts of problems with co-workers. This may also affect your health. Eating too quickly, on the run and also not paying attention to your body signals and result in lowered vitality and even ill-health. Try to get a better schedule together to balance your personal and work life at this time.
Karma Luck and Spirituality
Saturn and Uranus are your principal spiritual planets. They rule and code rules your 9th house. The stationary direct movement of Uranus on January 14 gives you the momentum you are looking for to seek a greater understanding of yourself. The April 29 trine to the Sun is significant as well. You are likely to have brilliant intuitive insights.
Your meditations can be electric and you are likely to have very vivid dreams at this time. You should trust the dreams you have and possibly even keep a dream diary. Study with the events you’ve dreamt about actually come to pass. You’ll be absolutely surprised at how your dreams, this year, can be one of important premonitions.
Both Saturn and Uranus will make significant retrograde and forward movements throughout the year. Firstly, Saturn will square Uranus on February 18. This simply means your values and belief systems will be under tremendous scrutiny. You are realising that some of what you’ve been carrying as a religious and philosophical platform to live by, isn’t cutting it anymore. You’ll be challenged to try new things while at the same time eliminating those outdated methods.
Saturn goes retrograde on May 23 and then direct on October 11. Uranus makes its retrograde station on August 20. All of these dates point to some significantly important turning points in your awareness and understanding of life generally.
You are moving into a new cycle now and what a deeper understanding of things. Superficial answers won’t satisfy you and neither will superficial people. You’re ready now to jettison yourself into a new phase of life. That may mean eliminating many people you once thought understood you. As you evolve and grow, you will realise that not everyone is on the same level as you.
It’s time for a change and you are more than ready for it. 2021 will be a memorable year if only for this specific development in your life.
Looking at the lunar phases, the two most fundamental energies in our birth chart are the Sun and the Moon. While the Sun is the most yang, projective, giving us our sense of individual self and purpose, the Moon is the most yin, receptive, providing us with the application of our purpose.
The Sun and the Moon
The Sun is the light and life of our system. The Moon being the closest heavenly body to us controls the rhythm of the sea and all its creatures as well as the flow of blood in the human body. As the Moon distributes the light of the Sun each night, we experience this partnership and are able to understand their relationship in forming the personality of the human being. Each night a different amount of light is given off by the Moon according to its changing relationship with the Sun.
28-day lunar cycle
Within an approximate twenty-eight day cycle the Moon will have passed through eight phases, each phase lasting about forty-five degrees or three and a half days. These phases each have their own unique characteristics which influence all life on the planet. The first phase is the New Moon at which time no light is emanating from its surface. Beginning at zero degrees it will have completed its cycle at three hundred and sixty degrees.
The lunar phases
One way to describe these phases is to use the analogy of the plant. At the New Moon, the seed is in the ground preparing for germination. It is implanted in a new beginning. In the early degrees of the Crescent Phase, the sprout is drawn up from the earth by the initial impulses of light.
During the remaining stages of the Crescent Phase, the plant goes through a strengthening process, mobilizing its energies against the elements of nature. When the First Quarter comes about, the plant has passed the initial stages of survival and is now sending down roots.
By firmly anchoring its life force, the plant is able to concentrate its energies in the growth of stems and leaves with the tiny buds appearing by the beginning of the Gibbous Phase. During the Gibbous phase, the plant is focusing on the reason for its existence.
By ridding itself of everything superfluous, the culmination of its entire past from its beginning is brought to the moment of its achievement by coming into bloom. The phase of the Full Moon is the completion. The work has been done and the gardener can stand back and assess his efforts.
As the Full Moon progresses through its forty-five degrees the flower becomes the fruit. The Disseminating phase is the harvest. The purpose of the plant is to now give back to the earth, to those who brought it into being and to nurture others.
By the time the Third Quarter comes around, the harvest is over, the abundance has been shared and what is left in the fields begins to decompose. The cycle is beginning to end.
During the Balsamic Phase, the seed capsule is buried underground. It is clear that what was, no longer exists in its original form. This is the time of transition. The light of the Moon has grown very dim and by the end of this phase will have disappeared into the darkness. When we are born we come in under the influence of one of the Moon’s phases. The degree will pinpoint its intensity.
